3:00 am
power and martial art strength, not only he is protect arizona and louisiana at the same time. it's unfair for us to expect him to and ridiculous for him to try. so for one night only we put steven seagal on the rediculist. tonight, russell brand. the comic cuts up over his wife, katy perry. >> i'm married now. she'll smash my head in. >> fesses up. >> i was almost an olympian heterosexual. >> larry: opens up about drugs an drinking. >> watch out for drugs. >> hold on, watch out, russell brand roars!
3:01 am
right now on ""larry king live."" comedian, actor, best-selling author. his new book is bookie wook 2. this time it's personal. he's also a newlywed. you're not cirrus sell yet? >> there's an inevitably. >> larry: some day you would be. >> there's a gravity pulling me towards a knight hood. >> larry: this time it's personal. what's the difference from this time to the first time. >> i was being wry. because my first was an i want mate portrait of my troubled and difficult childhood with drug addiction, all manner of abuse and arrests and mild criminality and vagrancy.
3:02 am
and it's the tag line on the sequel, "this time it's personal" rather undercuts the intimacy of the initial volume. >> larry: i think i understand that. >> it's english. >> larry: was it difficult? was it indeed cathartic to write this? you hike that word? >> yes, i did. there's dealing with the addiction and the pain. this book is more about celebrity and the nature of fame like how surprising it is when you become famous that it's not how it looks from the outside. >> larry: meaning? >> what i think, larry, is we live in a culture that's spell bound and enchanted by fame and it's used as a distraction for more significant and important issues. you're part of the spespectacle, it's fascinating. great to have a lot of money and be on the larry king show, that's brilliant. a lot of it you think that's peculiar peculiar.
3:03 am
there's important things happening and we're used as diversion. it's interesting. >> larry: you feel like a thing. >> i think you object if 're object iffed by fame. they simplify you. he's a womanizer or a cad or a troublemaker. they use you and they remove knew answers. someone said to me, the brilliant filmmaker, albert mazors said tyranny is the removal of nuances. they remove the grey area. it's complicated, not so simple as republican, democrat, good, evil. we live in a culture to reduce those things and make us passive consumers. >> larry: do you enjoy fame? >> some bits are, aren't they? when i was single, i got to meet a lot of girls. >> larry: you were heterosexual. >> i was almost an olympian heterosexual. i committed to it. i was out there training, doing the 100-yard dash. i wassing there before hitler
3:04 am
proving that he was wrong. but with my trousers down. jesse owens would never have done. >> larry: how many women do you estimate you have bed? >> i don't know, i don't like to put a number on it because it makes me look like a sexist chauvinist pig. also, i'm married now, and she would smash my head in. she's like, you're married, aren't you, shawn, your wife. i spoke to her on the phone before i came here. that's genuinely a fact, i did speak to larry's wife on the phone. you must not have the kind of control you have in the program in your house because she's a strong woman, huh? >> larry: yes, very. yours too. >> i live under a thumb. i seek -- >> larry: how did you meet katy? how did you meet her? >> there's an inevitably to meet her. >> larry: what do you mean? >> so happy i met her. falling in love is the most spectacular and extraordinary things in the world. the rest of the world is yeah, we heard it. it's a very normal romance. >> larry: what happens to you,
3:05 am
you know it. >> amazing. >> larry: have you ever been in love? >> evidently not. this is different for me. she's like a mate. >> larry: how did you meet? >> the mtv awards. i was hosting the mtv awards in radio city, new york. i was showing off trying to impress people and being funny in that. i was showing off. i looked at the trajectory using my knowledge of geometry. and i looked out and katie perry's right arm. it's good that she threw that accurately at that distance. a woman with an arm that strong i have to have in marriage. >> larry: she threw a bottle at you? for what purpose? >> i think it was attention speaking. a civil rights protest between two people. >> larry: what did she say? did you ask her? >> i tried to assimilate it in everyday life. i wanted to act like i've been
3:06 am
ruffled, undermined by this act. so, a bottle striking me on the head, reminds me back in england, the queen's country where the riots are endless, where they're campaigning for something, normally more socialism. >> larry: you never said to her, why did you strike me with the bottle. >> never asked her. i think it was evident to punctuate the slew of ordinary encounters i was having, giggling, chuckling women, the sweet scent of them, the pinkness of their cheeks, their rich coffee color depending on the hue of the day. >> larry: when did you fall? love? >> immediately, i think. >> larry: her too? >> well -- >> larry: when it happens, you can't believe it. >> i think it's a phenomenal thing. >> larry: always a shock. >> i like the acknowledgment of love between two people registers it capacity for all of us to love one another.
3:07 am
it makes me feel more abundant love for all people. this is what we should be building our culture around. it's very difficult to build an economic system around love, it's better than building one around greed. >> larry: why bookie wook? >> i'm childish. also, though. >> larry: it could be a children's book. >> and shepherd ferry, the great artist. he'd done that. ain't he brilliant. i call it "bookie wook," it's childish and there was that madness. i said i'll call it my bookie wook to undercut it. and the novel "clockwork orange" the protagonist addict speaks like -- my booky wooks and eggy weggs. it's like a white noise you don't really listen. an oil spill or murder.
3:08 am
a lifetime achievement award or whatever it is. it's a white noise of language. if you disrupt language by -- >> larry: booky wook, it's silly and childish. it interrupts you. >> how early did addiction begin? >> some people think addiction is inherent. i used to eat too much chocolate or get involved in self-harming and then like as soon as i found drug, it was a medicinal relief, immediately an antiseptic. >> larry: how old were you? >> was a junky by 19. it came in episodes and lucky that the government issued leaflet. it starts with marijuana and ends in cocaine and crack and heroin. it's like watch out for drugs, they're terrible. it's like reefer madness. a warming from the government. and i'm a liberal-minded ja. >> larry: but you didn't lose, obviously -- how did you get off of them?
3:09 am
>> oh, i went to rehabilitation facility. and there are many, thank god, fellowships now where people -- >> larry: in brooklyn? >> everywhere in the world. >> larry: where was yours? >> yeah, they pack you off there for these months, not allowed any drugs, any at all. it's tricky. they give you -- they're not joking around. at the beginning, they have sleeping pills. when you come off of heroin, it's ever so difficult to get to street. that's where the phrase kick the habits. your legs go kicky. they give you a sleeping pill. because i was a junky, i would take the sleeping pill at 3:00 in the afternoon. if you stay awake on the sleeping pill, it's drowsy. >> larry: and you beat it, though? >> one day. >> larry: and every temptation to go back? >> of course, i think addiction is something you have to be careful of. >> larry: daily? >> one day at a time. the only way to beat addiction. one day -- it's about me not taking drugs or drinking alcohol today. i've got my three delicious larry king beverages here.
3:10 am
but none is booze or drugs unless your team have lied to me. >> larry: our guest is russell brand. the book is it "booky wook 2." i hope he's defeated the habit. has not, at least to this point, have been true. we'll be right back. let me tell you about a very important phone call i made. when i got my medicare card, i realized i needed an aarp... medicare supplement insurance card, too. medicare is one of the great things about turning 65, but it doesn't cover everything.

3:14 am
>> yeah, i saw her at the performance at the ama's , she's phenomenal. that's exciting about fame or showmen -- showwomen. when she's performing, she's like, oh, my word, she's phenomenal. a great voice, her dances, she's a great entertainer. aside from that, she's a laugh, a normal person, easy to hang out with. the most normal relationship i've ever had probably because there's just one of her. >> larry: how did you propose? >> midnight, new year's eve, in india. the blue moon hung in the sky. >> larry: you're giving me -- >> romance and comedy are serious things. like once in a blue moon. we ate together in a garland tent. floral garlands. >> larry: what were you doing there? >> i took her there to ask her to marry me? >> larry: took her to india? >> just -- >> larry: why didn't you ask her in britain or hollywood? >> why would you do that?
3:15 am
the india or the spirituality where you can see god in people's eyes. >> larry: did she ask? >> she asked a lot of question. i just got the chloroform over her mouth, back to the suitcase, and off we go. >> larry: good thinking, russell. >> like pirates, vagabonds. >> larry: midnight, new year's eve. >> everything sounds like news when you do it. everything sounds like current affairs. your gravity must sound wonderful. cooking eggs would have gravitas. >> larry: new year's eve? >> so the thing was, it was full of all sort of -- i made it -- i wanted it to be all grand and flowers and lit torches where we walked down the pathway. gentlemen in turbans. we mount an elephant and it took us off to a clearing. midnight new year's eve, there's a lot of fireworks going off. on the back of the elephant. elephants don't like fireworks. >> larry: didn't know that. >> learning experience.
3:16 am
>> larry: they do? >> they recoil in horror. >> larry: did you fall off? >> i didn't want to undermine the romance situation. don't worry, dear, it's all part of the experience. just relax. just held her hand tightly. >> larry: side-by-side. >> one elephant. >> larry: does she think at this point you're a little weird. >> i imagine so. >> larry: she's in love. there's a blue moon, there's an elephant. a lot going on. difficult to think. >> larry: how did you say it? >> we get off of the elephant sharpish because things are going wrong. we walk in a clearance. and suddenly the grandiosity and the gestures and the magic melted away into the simplicity of a moment between the two people when you realize there's a kind of -- it was very, very emotional. in a way, asking someone to marry you is just saying a thing -- it's like saying a thing like -- you have to apologize or you have to be arrested and it was
3:17 am
him, they weren't my drugs. but there was a sincerity and it was -- it felt like an oath. that's why i take the institution of marriage very seriously and the presence of god seriously. >> larry: did you say will you marry me? >> i said it all quiet. my voice went strange. >> larry: say it again. >> i can't say it to you. what if it's legally binding. what a way to go off? your last month, larry king, a civil rights partnership with former junky mad man, russell brand. let's try it. >> larry: that would be a story. let's see your ring. >> this is your ring. let me see your wedding ring. >> larry: i can't take mine off. yours looks like -- it's a beautiful ring but it looks like on the female side. >> we have the same rings. you can't say to a woman, i don't like your wedding ring. it's too feminine. i'll get smack in the mouth. it's like houdini's foreskin.
3:18 am
look -- >> larry: houdini's foreskin. that's sick. that's sick. okay, i'll wear this the rest of the show we wear this and we exchange. >> we go back to each other's wives and live double wives. i'm with yours, you're with mine. will anyone notice? they'll notice, that's for damn sure as mustard. >> larry: the book is it "booky wook 2" i can't wait to read it. we'll be right back.
3:19 am
3:20 am
3:21 am
screw you, russell. stick to uk politics and keep out of u.s. politics. i like that he thinks i'm kind of like a political tv broadcaster. but i'm larry king running amock amock. >> larry: if you just joined us, we're wearing each others rings for some preposterous reason. >> who dare judge us. >> larry: damn --
3:22 am
>> damn them all. >> larry: russell brand is our guest. you sized up he's not bill clinton. the book is "booky wook 2," this time it's personal. katy described your looks as a combination of charles manson, jesus, jim morrison, plus a little bit of elvis. >> i'm happy with that. except charles manson. >> larry: a little rough. i knew jim morrison. you do look like jim morrison. >> thanks. >> larry: he was maybe the handsomest man ever. >> i'm holding it there. just run this here. this is breaking news. you're saying i look like the handsomest man ever. my, god, if i wasn't already wearing your wedding ring, i would be requesting it now. that's the nicest thing anyone has ever said. >> larry: you live in new york?
3:23 am
>> yeah. >> how do you combine juggling careers? you, actor, comedian. she, a singer, fame renown. why am i talking like this? >> brilliant. because she works a lot. i work a lot, all over the place. have to combine our schedules, not try to leave each other apart too long. we have ten days apart, we work it out so we can see each other. see her this morning, tomorrow. it works out. >> larry: do you want children? >> i'm going to be cool about it and say i don't want children because they make me weak. people go weak when they got your children. a mel gibson film, my kids would be gone at in time at all. but i love them, the little fellas, all wry, full of innocence, beauty. >> larry: do you think you would be a good father? >> i think so, mate, because i really like fun and i engage
3:24 am
with other people's children well. i don't know about that discipline and telling them to do that. when i see children doing stuff, i say that looks like a laugh. >> larry: you would not be a disciplinarian. >> might harm them or be potentially illegal. >> larry: potentially illegal? oh i would carry with me a copy of the constitution of the united states. i would say, the right to bear arms, yeah, that's there. carry on. >> larry: so, now, what are you now, russell? writer? standup comedian? actor? all of the above. >> comedian primarily. whatever i do, i try to infuse it with comedy. >> larry: do you do a standup act? >> that's my favorite thing. you're there with the audience. you look into their eyes, hear them laughing, you get away with saying crazy stuff. you can slowly build consensus. >> larry: are you like a british robin williams. a stream of consciousness. >> i love that robin williams, so, yes. he's a genius. now jim morrison and robin williams.
3:25 am
unless i got jim morrison's drug habit and robin williams' body hair. >> larry: don't need that. are you doing a remake of "arthur". >> i've done it in new york city. shaved and everything. >> larry: did you see the dudley moore film? >> i am. i'm ten miles away from where he's from. >> larry: alcohol is the theme of that film. >> yeah, but the thing is he's an idiot man child savant. alcoholism in the film "arthur" is not tragedy. if he didn't have a job and he was rich, why not get drunk. >> larry: it's for the whole movie. >> got nothing to do. if you're not addicted to alcohol and you haven't got a job and you are a billionaire, you might as well get drunk all day, right, bill gates? >> larry: now, since you're sober, was it hard to play drunk? >> what i done, right, larry, is i have bottles of booze and smell them all the time to get myself in the mood.
3:26 am
all right, this is a tequila scene. i would have a smell of tequila or scotch or whatever. it's easy if you drink all the time. it's easy to remember. i used to drink a lot of stuff, so i a lot of memory for being drunk. i think i spent 15 years drunk. >> larry: 15 drunks. >> ever so drunk, drunk, crack, heroin, the works. >> larry: i'll talk about the womanizing in a minute. >> okay. >> larry: the book is it "booky wook 2," russell brand who's married the wonderful katy. >> lovely woman. >> larry: lovely woman. we'll be right back.
3:27 am
3:28 am
3:29 am
this is no fish. but an island of lately suffered by a thunder bolt -- and that's the storm that's come again. but this way is to creep.
3:30 am
there is no other warrior about. misery acquaints a man with strange bedfellows. >> larry: we're back with russell brand. the book is "booky wook 2," i'll get back to the wedding first. but let's go pre-the wedding. as -- have you ever been in love? >> i get emotionally affected but love has an element of duty and commitment. but i used to get infatuated or excited but no one i could be mate with her for ages and ages. there was something distinct about katy and i was ready to meet someone. >> larry: in the bock you say -- >> don't quote scripture. this isn't plugged in. this is just a robot's ice cream.
3:31 am
>> larry: our staff psychiatrist dr. haldanish is on call today. >> get him here. i'm ready for the couch. >> larry: you're an olympian under the sheets. you were fantastic, right? you were a good lover. >> i tried hard, larry. it requires chemistry. proper good love making. you can't do it with a table, unless it's a hell of a table. but committed because of a ferocious deep love of femininity of women and anatomy. i love the aroma of a woman, the "scent of a woman" to quote dear al pacino. i love the variety. it got a bit much. if you're loose in a candy store for too long, you get diabetes. >> larry: did you wake up and not know who you were with? >> if you put name tags on them, that's offensive. >> larry: yeah, it is. >> often there was not just one, there were two.
3:32 am
>> larry: there were two? >> i was looking for the one. i was thorough. sometimes i would audition three or four at once. so occasionally, it was difficult to remember everybody's names. it would have been a bit impolite. you can't say see you later, sunny jim, me ole pat and brute. you run out of euphemisms and pet phrases. >> larry: you didn't have a type, you didn't say i liked tall blonds. >> they are nice. i'm inclusive. there was the element of if it was a bit yuck, or but it was repatience. but there was an element -- i see beauty in people. at that time, especially women now, now that i've found someone that i'm very, very happy with to be in a relationship, i feel this whim and also in men -- and i've got a ring on it, but it's like i'm aware of people's beauty. there was one element that it
3:33 am
was just an appetite for life and appreciation ed. >> larry: insatiable? >> someone insatiable? >> larry: the wedding not on an elephant? >> no, not going to involve them ever again. >> larry: were where were you marry? >> on the ground in india. >> larry: you got married in india. >> it's such a beautiful place. >> larry: describe the wedding. >> you look like it's a glowing map of the earth. but when you look at it up close, it's like you and your wife, shawn, have colored it in with pencils. what's going on, larry. >> larry: why are you doing this to us? >> this is our watergate. why are you doing this? >> larry: where did you get married? a synagogue in india or where? >> neither of us are jewish. >> larry: you'd be so different, you'd get married. >> synagogue or mosque but
3:34 am
there's only one god. a dog recognizes his master in any clothes, god is god, right? so we got married just outside. >> larry: outside. describe it. >> my wife will kill me. she said we're not spilling anymore information about the wedding. am i going to say larry king asked me? >> larry: who married you? it was a traditional wedding other than in india. it was katy's background is of course christian. so we were very respectful. >> larry: a minister? >> i don't know much about the old religion. i know much about god. i'm sure he wasn't a chef or a passer by or a tiger. >> larry: is it hard if you're not religious and she is. >> i'm respectful of all religions and they're the same. the thing i said, a dog will recognize his master in any clothing. >> larry: you believe in god. >> yes, yes, i believe very strongly in the presence of god in all of us. >> larry: he watches over you? >> i think he's present within us. i believe that strongly. >> larry: what happens when you
